Cleopatra is a silent film created in 1912 by Helen Gardner and the Helen Gardner Picture Players. The film, in which Gardner stars in the title role, was based on a play written by Victorien Sardou. In a series of elaborately staged tableaux, it depicts Cleopatra (Gardner) and her love affairs, first with handsome fisherman-slave Pharon, then with Marc Antony. The film features lavish sets and costumes and at just over an hour, it was considered fairly lengthy.

An attempt to create a coherent narrative out of all surviving fragments of Australia's first feature length film. Sections from the final reel are heavily decomposed. Running at just over 20 minutes, this is possibly the longest available version. What the posters said: "A thrilling moving picture from start to finish" "The Most Sensational, The Most Thrilling and Interesting LIVING PICTURES EVER TAKEN." Written and Directed by Charles Tait 1868-1933 Released: December 1906...
